1 Jaguar / IX – Journey of Spirit: Day 1 of 13


1 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

The Next 13 Days…

We begin again. Tone 1 returns us to the vibration of Unity and Oneness with the Creator.

Each trecena reflects the purpose of “Light” and “Dark.” As creatures of Duality, Human comprehends through a binary process. We began a new experience of being under the “Light” of IMIX. Our first step of learning is “Inspiration.” Our Consciousness is ignited by a new perception. We only fully claim our Truth by experience. Without experience, Truth will remain a theory held by Faith.

The trecena’s of “Light” nourish our Spirit and motivate Human to move in the Intention of our New Truth. Our cycle of “Darkness” is the reality of the Human Experience. We complete a Discernment of the “Light” by a personal application of the Truth.

Jaguar/IX is the Day Sign of Spirit. Jaguar is the shape-shifter that is capable to cross all dimensions of Time and Space, a Being of Ether. Jaguar/IX can show us how Spirit Moves in the world, by Movements of Intention. In the microcosm of our own Identity there is a Divine Relationship WITHIN our Self. Jaguar/IX can share the experience of walking as Human with the Consciousness of the Creator’s Relationship of Unconditional Love.

“IX” (eesh) is an element of the Mayan language that expresses the “feminine” aspect, like the “IX” in IMIX (ee meesh). The Divine Feminine holds the Power of Discernment, the Power to Conceive the Meaning and Purpose of Divine Inspiration (the Divine Masculine aspect). Following the footsteps of the Jaguar we will Conceive the Dream of Unconditional Love.

1st & 2nd UINALS:  A Call & Response
The first 20 days of the Tzolk’in calendar hold the energy of Number 1. The 1st Uinal marks a cycle of Divine Inspiration, and Oneness as a catalyst to Higher Consciousness. In the 260-day Human creation cycle, the 1st Uinal is the germination and taking root. We were awakened by the Creator’s Divine Inspiration. The 2nd Uinal represents the our natural Response, the Discernment of Understanding.

PORTAL DAYS: Element of Ether
Portal days thin the veil to Spiritual Dimensions and elevate our Awareness to our own Spiritual Gifts of Intuition and Knowing. The Jaguar/IX trecena has two Portals on the Peak Tones 7 and Tone 9. A Portal on 7 Sun/AHAU will magnify the Light of the Creator and the Balance between Heaven and Earth. On 9 Wind/IK a Portal Magnifies the Voice of the Creator that Calls us to Live for a Higher Purpose.  

PEAK DAYS: Peak Experience, Peak Performance

  • 6 Storm/CAUAC – generates momentum for Spiritual Growth through a Renewal and Regeneration of Spirit.
  • 7 Sun/AHAU – establishes a Balance of the Above and the Below, through a Revelation of Light on Earth.
  • 8 Crocodile/IMIX – begins a Transformation through the zenith Light of All Possibility.
  • 9 Wind/IK – completes the Transformation through the Discernment of a Divine Meaning and Purpose.

We are still germinating within the womb of Mother Earth. Through our Divine Communion, “We Know we Know” our way to reach the Light by Divine Guidance.  Nothing can stand in the way of Knowing our Direction by Love. Our Spirit inches toward greater Wisdom through the Human willing to Hold Faith it what it’s own Spirit Knows.

In this trecena of “darkness” we will walk as Human, using the Mind of Spirit. When we choose our Dream, instead of reasoning how or whether it’s possible, we’ll imagine how cool it will be. When we interact with others, we’ll seek to Give Unconditional Love, like the “hollow bone” that takes all our human expectations out of it. When we face the fear of the Unknown, we’ll offer the rituals of our prayers for the Divine Intervention to Remember that Unconditional Love is our Destiny.

All these things are not so hard to do. Our Human limitation is Remembering. God will Remember for us because we made the Choice to Ask. Remembering will be the the footsteps left behind by the Jaguar.

The Jaguar Remembers. IX is the nahaul who guards the sacred sites and temples. The Jaguar resides at the top of the pyramid, the place where Earth and Sky meet as a threshold into the realm of Spirit above. The Jaguar teaches us to step out of our Human mind and shape-shift into our Primary Identity of Spirit.

The Jaguar is an ethereal being of Spirit that projects a reflection of Spirit. When we do something for a Divine Intention, we reflect the Light of the Creator. When we Forgive, the person we have Forgiven doesn’t wholly credit Human for the Blessing. Whether we recognize it or not, a Spark of the Creator shows through – Love guided a Divine decision.

The Jaguar moves in stealth through the “Earth Magic” of Gratitude. If God’s “magic” is Love, then Jaguar’s “magic” is Gratitude. Jaguar is the Love of Mother Earth, the Consciousness of the Beauty of Life, and the Spiritual Vision of Knowing that every living thing is Conscious of the Presence of Love. Jaguar Sees and Acknowledges the Divinity in every thing. As an archetype of “living in Spirit” Jaguar’s Communion empowers it to see things through the Creator’s perspective.

The Jaguar can lead a Spirit Journey to any place and time for a view through the eyes of the Creator. Jaguar can change our Human experience through a Divine Perspective, that is the All-In-One Consciousness of Everything.  The Jaguar waits to meet us at the top of every Human climb.

This is our first climb as Human, applying what we learned about our Spiritual Tools of Consciousness. We’ll be given an Inspiration to process with our Imagination. As we bring our Idea into the world. We’ll consider whether the reason behind our Meaning and Purpose of movement is Love. When we Know we are guided by Love, we can ask for Divine Intervention to Remember and to make Wise Choices. Then we let go and walk in Faith, Believing that the Dream completed by the Creator will be better than we were able to Imagine.

Today’s Forecast…

Tone 1 is the Inspiration that overcomes the energy of inertia. Back at Tone 1 we are in our lowest point of Human energy in the movement of matter. Tone 1 is suited to thinking more than doing – being Present in the Moment.

Tones 1 and 2 are both low energy days. After powerful energy of our first Ascension, we may suddenly feel like the wind left our sails. Our first “reality of the experience” may be a lot of forgetting and simple steps may not seem so easy to carry out. (Consider this a temporary state of affairs.)

We’re stepping into the darkness of a new Unknown. We’re not sure what the experience of our creation will be. Like the difference between day and night, we saw it all clearly. Now we have to go by the Truth and Light we Remember.

We will Know when we Need to Know. The Creator runs efficiently, using the thoughts that naturally flow from one to another. The Creator will offer what we need to Know with every step it applies to.

To go with the flow, we align our Self with Tone 1’s Intention – a Day to BE and RECEIVE Divine Inspiration. Nothing else is more important than this first step of Unity. It guarantees that our Dream begins and ends in Communion with the Creator.

Our “magic powers” for this journey are Love and Gratitude. No matter what challenge we face, we see it as part of an unfolding Miracle. The “magic” to Believe can be drawn from Mother Nature. When we turn our Consciousness to the Beauty all around us to Remember.

Jaguar is said to hear the beating heart of Mother Earth. Like a Mother knows the heart of her child, sharing the same joy and pain, the Jaguar Believes in the Heart connection of a Compassionate Mother. When we turn to the Divine Mother we will Remember we are always provided for. All we have to do to Know the Love of Mother Earth is to turn to her and start counting our blessings. In the counting, She will touch our Heart with the Power of CHICCHAN. We will Know her Love in our Heart.

The Jaguar is said to lead its shape-shifting journeys toward the East, so that every Destination will end up in the Light. Only our Human mind knows fear. We can use Fear to remember to shape-shift back into our Spiritual Identity.

The Light of the Jaguar led my path to Ek’ Balam. This was the power I turned to, to realize a Miracle. I claimed my journey was a matter of following the Jaguar’s footprints wherever they led me. I overcame obstacles believing all things were in Divine Order. Were it not for these footprints, there was more than one time I would have likely turned back. Believing in these footprints led to a Miracle.

To all my relations, in Unity with the Creator may we share the Gratitude in our Heart for all the Possibilities of Creation. May we use this time when we hold the Unity of Divine Consciousness to grasp the Vision of the footprints that will be left for us to follow. May we turn to Mother Earth to See and Acknowledge the Consciousness of Love in every living thing. All things know their way to the Light. May we ask for Divine Intervention for our Human Mind to Remember what our Spirit always Knows. May we remember the “hollow bone” is the channel through which to Receive the Full Light of a Divine Illumination. May we turn to Truth in the Up Above and not to the false truth of the world Below.

May we go on a Jaguar journey together, heading out with Gratitude for where it will lead. For the next 13 days, may we ask the Creator that every step is guided by Divine Design, and with each step Claim the Truth that it is So. May we be Grateful Now imagining the Divine End that would be manifested by the Creator for such a Dream.

in lak’ech, i am another you

1 Jaguar/IX  (Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI)

Galactic Tone 1: Unity. One is the beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one. One’s are assertive and self-guided and give a good push to whatever project they are associated with. One persons work best when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.

Jaguar/IX: Born with a deep love of the Mother Earth, Jaguar or shaman is directly tied to the source of all Earth magic. They possess great power of intellect and strength or character through integrity. Jaguar energy is feminine in nature and is the ruling spirit of jungles, plains, and mountains. The spirit of Jaguar inhabits the Mayan temples and is called on to assist in spiritual as well as in material ways. Jaguar is also the god/goddess of gratefulness. Patience born of strength and skill can turn to pounce of quick decision and action. Both bold and stealthful, Jaguars do not often attack directly and communications from them usually contain some mystery. In the absence of integrity, Jaguars power corrupts becoming a search for wealth and fame.

Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI: Panther is symbolized by comets, meteors, shooting stars, fireballs, and magicians.  Meteors appearing around the middle of November are Heralds of the Coming of the Light, the Cherokee New Year. Panther is the Shadow of the Sphinx, Herald of the Dawn, guardian of the night when the sun is traveling through the underworld. Panthers have unlimited imaginations, visualizations, and are spellbinding speakers. The Totem Jaguar is the guardian of the portals to other dimensions; shamanic abilities will open; multi-dimensional magic; healer, leader, way shower energy when used for spiritual growth.  Abuse would be for using this power for control or negative purposes; must find a powerful balance.

[Text in italics was the primary source of inspiration for my journal. These are the sources that started my journey and they are the reference for interpretation each day. By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources.

  1. In the Himalayas they say that yhe sherpa guides have themselves blessed at temple before the start of any journey. Thereafter, they can see their future footprints ahead of them, telling them which way to go. When the future foorprints disappear completely they always know it is time to turn back. Happiest of holidays, my dear.

  2. Thank you Debra for these inspired and inspiring words and for highlighting the empty bone, the channel that conducts the flow of spirit from above to below, from Reed through to Jaguar, from energy to energy, from day to day and night to day, for the seamless continuity in the ebb and flow of life-giving energy through the grace of the Creator of the Universe.

    Wishing you a blessed Christmas and Holiday Season.
